Volvo CE 310X

For the second year in a row, students from ME310 Project Based Engineering Design submitted their final projects to the SDR for preservation. With the submission of these 19 projects, we also preserved the Winter quarter reports for the students’ design projects.   This year’s projects covered a variety of products from construction equipment to designing a better way to chill a drink to creating a better flying experience for passengers with limited mobility.  These projects help inform future classes about design process as well as create a network of contacts for future work. 

Other 2014 projects include:

When the students submissions were created last year we were in the process of completing a retrospective project to digitize the ME 310 archive. This summer, the first projects from this collection were added to SearchWorks. The collection currently includes 202 projects dating back to the oldest project in the collection, Microfiche auto-indexer, completed in 1976.  We’re excited to make these reports available to the Stanford community and look forward to completing this process to bring in the additional projects still in process.  The Mechanical Engineering 310 student project reports collection can be viewed in SearchWorks.

If you are an ME310 author who would like your project included in our archive, email Sarah Lester for more details.

Lake Surprise Research by Daniel Ibarra from

It is no longer a surprise how ancient lakes in the western US -- such as Lake Surprise -- managed to become so large. Research undertaken by Daniel Ibarra, a graduate student working at the time with Kate Maher, assistant professor of geological and environmental sciences, showed that the root cause was a lower rate of evaporation than we see today.
